We support businesses to manage their different stages of development from start-ups to retirement sales.
When you own your own business, we understand that you want to focus on sales and productivity not legal issues. That's why we offer a supportive service that can deal with all your legal needs for you.
We act for buyers of businesses (whether share or asset purchases) and pride ourselves on guiding first time buyers through what can seem like a daunting process.
We also assist with start-ups, dealing with all aspects including banking agreements, employees and commercial property.
As your business develops we can help with shareholders agreements, partnership agreements, share reorganisations (including succession planning or creating more than one class of share), terms and conditions of trading, the full range of commercial contracts, employment contracts, as well as dealing with your property needs, whether in relation to freehold or leasehold premises.
Eventually, if you decide to sell we can assist to ensure that you maximise the return for your hard work.
In particular we will ensure that the buyer does not seek to reduce its initial offer either directly or by introducing unreasonable terms in the documents or by delaying the sale process.
